With the Church’s recent statements on ways digital media can be used to spread gospel messages online, and encouragement for members to use the Internet to flood the earth with truth and righteousness, many have questions about sharing beliefs without appearing to be “preachy” or “pushy.” This concern is understandable. In an era of crowded and confusing voices online, it can be difficult to tell if communications will be heard and understood.

With this in mind, the following questions will help you assess whether your online content will convey your meaning and intent:

~  Have I considered the audience’s perspective or frame of reference?

Messages intended for Church audiences often reach those outside the Church as well. When you share what you believe, select wording that is simple and straightforward. Starting with “I feel…,” “I believe…,” or “I have come to learn…” adds personal context to what follows. It leaves the door open for other opinions and questions from your readers.

New LDS.org Navigation Menus: Resources Easier to Find Print E-mail

The phone rings on Saturday night. It’s your child’s Sunday School teacher asking you to be a last-minute substitute for his class. “You can find the lesson on LDS.org,” he says before hanging up. LDS.org is easy to find, but now where do you go?

LDS.org will get a new navigation menu in a release scheduled for mid-May, the latest of the Church’s continuing improvements to make its official website more personalized and easier to use.

Aware that any changes may be temporarily confusing for anyone who regularly uses the site, the Church has prepared an introductory video as well as instructional video tours to ease the transition. These will be found on the LDS.org home page and linked from social media and other sources to help visitors learn about and navigate the new menu structure.

Why change at all?

Studies by the Church show that members rely on LDS.org to help them

  • Become better followers of Jesus Christ
  • Serve in their callings and assignments
  • Feel inspiration and hope
  • Find practical helps for life’s challenges
  • Stay connected with the Church

But users’ feedback over the past few years regarding LDS.org has been clear: resources are difficult to find, and the navigation could be more intuitive.
